Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin is 'toasting' CB Darrelle Revis at joint practices


Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin is 'toasting' CB Darrelle Revis at joint practices

Maclin has been beating Revis consistently in 1-on-1 drills at the Eagles-Patriots joint practices this week, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane. Maclin missed all of 2013 with a torn ACL, but appears fully rehabilitated and ready to play. He returns to an Eagles roster that is thin at WR, with former star WR DeSean Jackson departed to the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Analysis:

This is very good news for Maclin, with the caveat that Revis did not appear to be giving 100 percent effort in the drills. Still, the fact that Maclin is able to beat one of the NFL's top cornerbacks should provide a boost for his confidence as he seeks to return to live action football. Maclin is a borderline value fantasy pick this year, playing with QB Nick Foles in Chip Kelly's high-octane offense. He's being taken as the 26th WR overall, but has strong WR2 upside if he returns to his old form.

Maclin can barely get through practice with hamstring and other issues daily. Don't believe the hype

I saw the report that he tweaked a hamstring today in practice - but it sounded like he was resting as a precautionary measure. Didn't seem like anything major. Maclin's important to the Eagles, so they're being careful with him.

Scary, scary, scary !!! I was really hoping that Jeremy was going to slide right in and pick up where DeSean left off...racking up quick yardage in this Chip Kelly "heart-attack", but instead, he is racking up ambulance Milage. I'm staying away !!!
